    I don't have a problem reading mine either, and I use the itty bitty complication. Quite honestly, I don't need to use it now that I have the S2 and it consistently makes it through the day without issue.
    My problem reading it is only because I won't wear glasses that I need to!

    That's the reason I got the 42mm over the 38mm: bigger and better battery and screen.

    Do you have the 42mm or the 38mm? When I tested out the 38mm the display was too small for me and the band felt too tight. That's also why I chose the 42mm.

    I had it in the same place. No trouble reading it, just didn't need it any more. It was replaced with my Activity rings.

    I have the 38mm. It's not the watch, it's just my eyes.

    It'll be ok in a few days. Just tired at the moment so can't focus on small things.

    I changed the color of the seconds timer to Midnight Blue.

    I changed the Watch face back to the way it was in the first photo I posted. I like that style better.

    I don't have 42. I have the 38. The 42 would be huge on my tiny lady wrists.

    Everyone has their own preference for the Watch.

    I wear glasses all the time so I can read the Watch face easily.

    I found that with watchOS3 and the new hardware there is no need to show the battery as a complication. I have a watch face that is just the time and battery so when I put the watch on the charger I can see easily that the battery is at 100%. However even as a heavy user my watch is never out of juice.

    Oh and happy belated birthday!

    I just took a picture of my watch face to demonstrate why I don't use the battery complication. Fridays are typically heavy battery use days for me. The watch has been off the charger 12 hours. Most of the 143 minutes of exercise included constant HRM with just under an hour of using the GPS. And still, I have 62% battery left.

    Impressive. The longest that I can recall on my first generation Black Stainless Steel Apple Watch was approx 36 hours. I normally put my Apple Watch on the charger every night and always have plenty of battery left after a day of out and about.
